If you need to produce a small amount of discs of your album, you can do it on your own, at home. It is quite easy to make some copies of a simple jewel case cd package, using an A4 printer. One A4 page makes 1 cd. Find the A4 template below.

You need an A4 printer and A4 papers. You can try using different kinds of papers and paper weights. For better results choose white paper.

If your artwork is Black and White, your cd will be cheaper to print. 
Check out our Black and White covers, which are great looking and cheaper to print.

How to do it:

STEP 1 – Download this psd A4 template (300dpi) we have created –psd.
Open the file with Photoshop or Gimp (free app).
Here is also available in pdf.

STEP 2 – Import your album cover image in this document. Place this layer under layer 2 and make sure it fits well inside the 12X12 box.

Front cover artwork image / Size: 12 x 12 cm

(If you have bought your artwork from www.music-artwork.com the file “12X12_jewelcase.jpg” fits exactly.)

STEP 3 – Design the back of the case:

You can create the BACK of the case on this template. Type inside the BACK template the names of the tracks, add label logos, copyright, place image, etc.

Inlay artwork / Size: 11,7 x 15,2 cm.

Try to make it simple! You do not need to add a lot of stuff here.

STEP 4 – Print a test page, cut the images on the lines (use cutter knife and ruler), fold the edges of the Inlay on the dashed line, and try both cut papers on the tray. Be careful: Scale must be 100% when you print. If everything is ok, print as many copies as you need.

STEP 5 – Rosette

We suggest to print your disc rozettes in a printing company.

Tip! If you want something minimal, you can leave the rosette blanc (use discs with no text) or use a marker and draw on the discs.
